Space Patrol Episode 2 The Wandering Asteroid




This is a very rare children's television program. It was found in one of my encrypted boxes. It appears to be puppetoon like, but this was how many of the classics was made like Sigmond the Sea Monster, and H.R. Puff-N-Stuf and other Saturday morning classics.

Subject: Amazon stolen some of my work
Amazon tends to steal stuff and get a new copyright issued. This particular set was around before DVDs and even before Amazon was in business. I've checked and this copy of space patrol is in public domain as are copies of Buck Rogers. I have copies of them from The Film Preservation Society.

Subject: Public domain?
Could someone check and see if this show is public domain. The DVD is also for sale by the company that releases Supercar, Fireball Xl-5 and some others. Check it out on Amazon. Thank you

It was called Planet Patrol when it was on WNEW-TV 5 in New York. The production company was female owned with people who used to work for Gerry Anderson.

Subject: Background Info
This programs narrative was the adventures of a police force, in the year 2100, called the Galasphere 347 which included: The Captain Larry Dart, crew members from Mars, Venus, and a martian parrot. Its genre is sic-fi/action/adventure. It was geared towards children also. This show was produced in the UK, the production companies behind the show were National Interest Pictures and Wonderama Productions (both have very little history, seem to be UK productions that were only around in the 60's), it was broadcasted on ABC network. Its original air date and time slot was April 7, 1963 and the time slot varied.

Subject: An eye-opener for me...
I didn't know that Gerry Anderson had competitors for his Sci-Fi puppet productions. Obviously he ran away with the field, if this is any indication of what other production houses had to offer. As a kid in the mid-1960s, I had adored all his stuff (here in the US I got to see Stingray, Fireball XL5, and Thunderbirds on Saturday mornings). It was hard for many years to find any trace of these programs, and then the Internet happened, and not only can I find these gems again, I can find the not-so-gems I didn't know existed. Thanks for posting this!

Two stars for the show itself (let's face it, it's mediocre at best, but at least it has robot marionettes and a great episode name, and that's cool) and two stars to you for allowing us to see it in all its historical importance in the story of this kind of wonderful weirdo TV. So four stars in total, and why!
